Here are the completely unofficial RUNWV POWER RANKINGS. These rankings are calculated by scoring the Best Perfomances link as a state wide meet using results we obtain during the season. I think it is important that I make you aware of the weaknesses of this ranking system. Here are the main weaknesses:
1. I do not receive the results of every meet. For some teams, I only see a few meets all season. This means that not all performances are available for the standings. As the season progresses, this becomes less of a problem.
2. Hand timing at many meets leaves something to be desired. In the past, I have witnessed several meets in which events timed were nearly a half second off. This can make a huge difference in rankings for sprint events such as 100, 200 and 110 hurdles. As such, I have elected to only include FAT times for those events. Other known hand times will received the appropriate adjustment.
3. A great athlete may be trying different events and could possibly have attained rankings in four or five individual events as well as helping team relays get ranked in several other events. These rankings allow an athlete to participate in as many events as he/she desires, possibly vastly overstating the true overall quality of that team.
4. The ranking system does not take into account the fact that a runner may have jogged to an easy victory in an event and that the person ranked just ahead of them may have given all they had to record their time.
With that said, here are the RUNWV POWER RANKINGS for each class.
